Since its Chicago I'm betting there are more baby-daddys than mommas.  Probably 2.5 to 1


Yeah, I'm sure this township with a per capita income of $70,331 has a huge problem with that

Yay, a world-record for a high school for having so many rich parents who can afford fertility treatments.

I am proud to report that I was expelled from New Trier (underground newspaper in the '60s). Also expelled from New Trier blues great Michael Bloomfield and actor Ralph Bellamy. Graduate: Rummy. 'Nuff said.

FDR Jones: E-Town is a pretty common nickname for Evanston -- however, like many city nicknames, it's not used by the residents themselves, but by others (e.g., Frisco, Philly, Chi).


You're obviously not from Evanston because we do call it E-Town.  Always have; always will.

//E-TOWN BABAY!

I have spent a lot of time in Evanston in the past 20 years, and this morning passed a door that said "E-Town Bistro" and thought, "that is the second time I have heard 'e-Town' and the last was years ago. It's a failed attempt at a nickname."

Now I've heard it three times. It's a trend!

Fertility treatments are mandated insurance coverage for Illinois.


Granted I'm not familiar with insurance in Illinois. But in my experience with insurance, covered != affordable.
